Default She wants to bite me!!

Avery cracks me up! Lately her new thing is to attack me anywhere she sees exposed skin (knees, arms and most favorite, FACE). I'd pick her up and lean in for a kiss and she opens her mouth real wide and try to bite me! And she makes that "aaaaaahhhh" noise too! Plus she shakes when she thinks that she's got me...from trying to bite down real hard! Once she got my bottom lip and I almost cried, I thought she gave me a lip piercing! It was funny at first, but now I think it's becoming a bad habit, so I constantly tell her "No biting mommy" and turn away or I put her back down. What a silly little baby!

Oh boy that could be trouble. Some babies bite out of frustration (Sophia will bite the thing she is trying to control or she has attempted to bite Noah) or they will bite because they think it is funny (my niece does this - my sister is having a hard time with her but she only does it to her, no one else).

Susan was a biter (at daycare no less). Becca doesn't seem so inclined to bite, but I think Susan's started when she was little older. Sounds like you're doing the right thing by putting her down and telling her no biting.

That teething will make babies do funny things! Thre was a great article in one of my professional journals about problem biting being related to oral-motor development, especially in toddlers. I wish there was a way I could let you all see it (not that I think biting at this age is a problem ).

Aislinn has been trying out her new choppers on me too! I just make sure she has plenty of stuff around that is OK to bite and give one to her when she wants to bite me.
